Kathy Stacy
Head Start Teacher
Warfield Elementary
Martin County

 

1. Tell us about your position with Head Start.

I have been with the Martin County Head Start Program since 1997. I am a Preschool/Head Start Teacher. I must say that God is the one who opened the door for this job for me and I was blessed to get it.

2. What do you like best about working with preschool age children and their families?

Some things I like most about working with preschool aged children and their families is watching these young children blossom and grow. I have an opportunity to make a difference in young lives and an opportunity to profoundly impact the lives of children and families.

3. What's something not many people know about you?

Something most people don't know about me is, I love to kayak. I enjoy riding the river and seeing the most unusual stuff that gets hung up during the flood/spring rain seasons. I also enjoy participating in 5Ks.

4. What's the most fun project you've ever worked on?

The most fun project I really enjoyed sharing with my families was the science experiment where I created an invisible fire. I wanted to teach families and children how dangerous hand sanitizer can be if ignited.
I also enjoy dancing with the children.

5. If you could have tea with a fictional character, who would that be and why?

I would love to have tea with the character Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Belle looks for the beauty in life. The character Belle is very confident and outspoken in her opinions and seldom likes being told what to do. However, she is adaptable, friendly, and accepting. Oh, and wearing a beautiful ball gown would be a must at tea! LOL

6. If you could sit down with your 13-year old self what would you say?

Sitting down with my 13-year old self, I would tell myself God has great plans for me and to put Christ first and everything will be awesome.
Just like the song:
Dear younger me
Where do I start
If I could tell you everything that I have learned so far
Then you could be
One step ahead
Of all the painful memories still running thru my head
I wonder how much different things would be
Dear younger me,

Dear younger me
I cannot decide
Do I give some speech about how to get the most out of your life
Or do I go deep
And try to change
The choices that you'll make cuz they're choices that made me
Even though I love this crazy life
Sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride
Dear younger me, dear younger me

If I knew than what I know now
Condemnation would've had no power
My joy my pain would've never been my worth
If I knew then what I know now
Would've not been hard to figure out
What I would've changed if I had heard

Dear younger me
It's not your fault
You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross
Dear younger me

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed


Every mountain every valley
Thru each heartache you will see
Every mountain every valley
Thru each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be
Dear younger me, dear younger me

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new hear
You are free indeed

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed

7. What would your theme song be if you had your own show?

My theme song would be Judge Judy. Judge Judy keeps it real and if we had more judges like her out judicial system would be less crooked.

8. Who has been the most influential person in your life and why?

There are a lot of people who have had tremendous influence in my life. My parens have been two of the biggest influences in my life. They have taught me values to live by. They have supported me and they encourage me to pursue my dreams while challenging me to be the best that I can be. I would not be the person I am today without their love and guidance.

9. What is your idea of a perfect day?

My perfect day would be a day where my little family would all be together and we would be playing a funny game, laughing and enjoying each other's company.

10. What is the biggest risk you've ever taken?

Driving a little-too fast, more that once.

11. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I would enjoy traveling to Jerusalem to see and walk where Jesus walked. Then I would go on to Heaven where my troubles and trials will have passed and just sit at Jesus' feet and worship and praise Him.

12. What makes you laugh out loud?

Things that make me laugh are silly things that happen in the classroom with the kids.

13. What three things do you want to be remembered for?

  • I want to be remembered for being a person who chose to serve Jesus Christ.
  • I want to be remembered for being a kind, compassionate person.
  • I want to be remembered for helping others.
